. a u.s. ambassador and three others were killed in a terrorist attack on that diplomatic compound in libya. one state department official resigned wednesday and three others removed after an independent panel found security at the consulate was insufficient and state department leadership was to blame. >> the security posture at the special mission compound was inadequate for the threat environment in benghazi. and in fact, grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place that night. >> the report also found the attack was not the result of protests over an anti-islamic video as was first reported. later today, two deputy secretaries of state will testify before congress about the attack. secretary of state hillary clinton will not be there. she's recovering from a concussion after fainting from the stomach flu. aides say clinton, the most traveled u.s. diplomat ever won't be making any trips at all for a few weeks. state department officials dismiss claims that clinton is faking her illness to avoid testifying. >>> vice president joe biden is getting right to business w
. that is a scathing conclusion of an independent review board investigating the deadly september 11th attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed that day. the panel finding security in benghazi was grossly inadequate to cope with the attack, that washington ignored repeated requests to beef up personnel, and ultimately a lack of transparency, responsiveness and leadership senior levels both this washington and in libya. alise, what do you make of this report. a lot of these findings we've been talking about for a very long time. >> that's right, but also in the last few months, there's been so much politicization of this attack, especially with these talking points and the whole issue of susan rice, ambassador susan rice and what she said about whether there was a protest. this report didn't find that there was a protest, but it also kind of really is the first look at what went wrong, a kind of very sobering look i'd say of what went wrong. and they said that basically the state department and the embassy in libya kind of missed the warning

, it expired in 2004, the law in effect banned 20 different assault weapons manufactured in the u.s. also banned the manufacture of high-capacity magazines, the ones that hold more than ten bullets. there were plenty of loopholes, though, gun manufacturers could make minor modifications and then rename them, in a sense making them legal. also, there was no ban on the import of assault weapons from overseas. you see, the ban was only for american-made guns. any guns or high-capacity magazines manufactured before the ban could still be owned and used legally. when it comes to gun bans, the states have taken the lead. california went full speed ahead after a shooting in elementary school in stockton in 1989. they banned the manufacturer, transport, import, or sale of assault weapons, also now bans sales to felons and drug addicts and requires safety training, a ten-day waiting period and outlaws those high-capacity magazines that hold more than ten bullets. other states also limit who can own guns and guns that can be carried with or without a permit. how prevalent are they really? well, the

business correspondent for "u.s. news & world report." i want to ask you about the tax increase if there is no deal and tax rates rise, when would workers begin to see that reflekr reflected in their paychecks? when does the pain start? >> this is not one tax hike. this is about nine different sets of taxes. and the one that would go up right away is the payroll tax. that was cut temporarily in 2 009, cut by two percentage points and will go back up by two percentage points and that would come out of workers' paychecks right off the bat. it would add up to something like $60, $70 a month for the typical worker. we hear about all the tax rates that are going up, that actually wouldn't involve money that is in people's pockets until they actually pay their taxes or do their tax returns the following year. because that's when they would have to calculate the amount they owe and whether they paid enough taxes in 2013. so the good and bad news about that is that is not going to affect people right away, but that also means they can put that one off for a long time and we could go --
:40 in the afternoon. susan rice remains the u.s. ambassador to the united nations. and a high-profile one at that. she's known for being very close to president obama, a long-time friend and ally for the president. she's also known for being blunt. and for being aggressively intelligent. she is a rhodes scholar. she's stanford educated. she was on the national security council staff and served as assistant secretary of state in the clinton administration. she was unanimously confirmed in 2009 for the post she holds now as the u.n. ambassador. when hillary clinton made clearer than clear that she would not stay on for a second term as secretary of state, susan rice's name was floated basically immediately as a potential nominee for that job. hers was not the only name floated for that job, but her potential nomination was given new prominence and new political heat when republican senators, led by john mcguess who decided that the political traction they could not get before the election in attacking the president for the benghazi attack, they would try to get instead after the election by attacking su
. there is about 6% of u.s. adolescents that are clinically depressed. that's not just sad. it's in a deep state that need help of one type or another. whether it's counseling or drugs or whatever. they need some help. they're relatively easy to identify. and you can do it in a simple screening process. for very little money. we could have every kid when you get your high school physical, you also have to get checked out, or periodically before graduation. because the thing is, most depressives, kids want to -- they want help. and they will tell adults. usually the two adults they will not tell are their mom and their dad. and that's actually part of the screening protocol is that parents can't be in the room, because they will usually tell a teacher or a counselor or a family doctor. they will tell an adult, but they hide it from their parents because they're embarrassed, ashamed, all sorts of different reasons. so the parents are often blind to it because the child is sort of blocking their view. so parents have difficulty. but yeah, we can do so much. >> each one of these things seems like it
to continue to be an outstanding u.s. ambassador to the united nations. i hadn't made a decision about who would be my next secretary of state. there's no doubt that susan was qualified. there are other people who are qualified as well. her interest is in serving me but most importantly serving the country. and she's done an outstanding job. i could not be prouder with her. she will continue to be one of the top members of my national security team. >> we talked about the next choice. it's interesting to watch the dominos fall. a lot of people saying john kerry now is the choice. all these same senate republicans who were challenging susan rice said john kerry will breeze through. it will be an easy confirmation. then that opens up a senate seat in massachusetts. could scott brown come back? this opens up a whole new series of conversations. >> to andrea's last point, you kind of wonder if it's only six weeks after a very, very resounding win in the election and obama was not pounding his fist standing strong, you wonder what the next four years will be. >> he was angry. >> he could wen a

? >> yes. >> they would have to get a lot of cashes from overseas by the way. you hear cash at u.s. corporations, a lot of it is overseas. repatriation tax holiday is not part of any negotiations we've been hearing about. >> not at all. >> an area that's a no go. so that is an important part of the calculation. if you can't bring that cash back and goldman says this. this is not something they think is going to happen. >> do you remember when steve brought seagate private. it was brimming with cash. raised the dividend next week. why doesn't michael dell pay out a special dividend and everyone is thrilled. >> fundamentals are still what? >> fundamentals are -- i mean, look. fundamentals depend upon a belief that the personal computer is going to be with us for a long time and is not that much in decline. ipad will not crush it. i don't know. >> why not redistrict some of that free cash flow and that cash into an area where you think you can attain real growth. try to recreate the company in some sort of significant way. >> i think that -- >> it's not easy to do that by the way. >>
and losses have been picking up in the last hour or so as we've seen renewed concern about the u.s. fiscal cliff whether a negotiation could be reached. we saw some optimism in the asian session overnight. i want to draw your attention to the most important story potentially for 20123 and that's what's happening in japan. you guys may recall yesterday it was up .9%. this market has been on a tear this year. it's up more than 20 one of the best asset classes. the yen continues to weaken. there's two reasons why we're focusing here. we got weak economic data out of japan. industrial production decline. we saw core consumer prices decline. we can show you, though, what's happening with the yen. we're seeing the new finance minister coming out and saying to other countries, you know, look, we're not trying to materially weaken our yen and you have no place to accuse us of doing so. he says a strong dollar policy would benefit the u.s. very much so. and, again, might benefit japan, too, because that will make it a lot easier to get that yen lower. today, the dollar/yen is up .2% because it's im
targeting the u.s. facility. at the same time the state department increasingly was relying on a local libyan militia known as the 17th february brigade as well as on outside security contractor to protect the consulate. the report concludes neither provided meaningful defense on the day of the attack. jenna: what about the hearings? will secretary clinton testify on any of this information? >> reporter: well the unclassified report is lengthy but a key piece is missing. it does not address the policy piece. for example, why was it that secretary of state hillary clinton and her office felt that a smaller, or light footprint was necessary or was justified in eastern libya given the intelligence about the deteriorating security conditions? just a short time ago a senior republican here on capitol hill said secretary of state hillary clinton must testify. >> i do think it's imperative for all concerned she testify in an open session prior to any changing of the regime. i think that that's very important for her. i think it's very important for our country and i think it's very important
, the revolutionary guard captured a u.s. drone. the aircraft was flying in iran's airspace and brought down by electronic jamming. we're working to confirm this story. more details as soon as we have them. elsewhere, with only four weeks to go before we reach that fiscal cliff, republicans offer a proposal for a new deal. it had few specifics. the white house rejected it. tracie potts joins us from washington with the details. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. with a white house proposal and republican proposal on the table, you'd think we would have somewhere to begin negotiations. the white house says what republicans have offered isn't even a start. six governors, democrats, and republicans weigh in on the fiscal cliff today. what will they tell president obama about the spending cuts and tax increases now just 28 days away? >> we must reign in our out of control spending. >> reporter: republicans have an offer, $800 billion in new taxes, half what the president wanted. $600 billion saved in part by making americans wait until they're 67 to get medicare. plus more cuts totalling $2.2
on and take a look at some other data here. what's the biggest threat to the u.s. economy? slow job growth, 9%. moving on here to the next one, the euro crisis, that's come way down, 11%. the next one is going to be 33%. the winner, the fiscal cliff, 35%. what are people saying about the fiscal cliff? we have people write in, and i believe that's what we'll look at next. we'll look at the probability of a u.s. recession. that has come up. in part because of the fiscal cliff concerns. it was 19% back in march. a high of 36%. so we're halfway between the low and the high pretty much. this is a 13-month high for the probability of recession. now we want to show you what people are saying about the fiscal cliff, allowing the economy to go over the cliff would be extremely reckless, says donnelly. they're going out to try to help the unemployment rate. wall street doesn't believe it's going to happen. they do believe it will help lower mortgage rates and the unemployment rate and not a lot of help expected for the stock market. melissa? >> steve, thanks for that. that's interesting stuff there. >>
as if the u.s. government would not pay interest on its debts. have -- you know perfectly well will is about a million things. i have been in the country where they ran out of borrowing capacity and managed important several years to survive without that borrowing capacity. there's a million things you can do before. you don't pay your debt on the u.s. treasuries before you stop paying social security, before you do lots of other things. is he purposefully trying to elevate this to a situation that frightens people? >> in many ways -- this is like the mayan calendar. they said the world would end december 21. we are all still here. the fiscal cliff negotiations and the debts limit thing are not the end of the world and we will figure it out. the most important thing to keep in mind is long term. we want to have a healthy fiscal situation. we have to have a healthy economy. we have to address growth. here's something else that is -- totally missing from this conversation. >> jimmy? >> understand that the executive branch is required under federal law to notify the legislative branch that, fac
back to mortga"morn joe." there are new developments involving the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. it places most of the blame on the state department for providing extra security. they conclude a systemic management failure at the state department resulted in grossly inadequate security at the consulate where four americans were killed that night. the report says the u.s. relied on poorly skilled local militia members to safeguard the facility, and investigators found no evidence it was sparked by protests to an anti-muslim video. >> no evidence of that, and that's what, of course, the white house and the press led with after this happened. >> this is from an independent panel. >> unbelievable. gross negligence, willie, against hillary clinton's state democrat department. >> the report found no cause for disciplinary action. they made 29 recommendations to improve embassy security. secretary of state hillary clinton reportedly has accepted all of them. >> can i ask you, when is the hearing? >> thursday. >> what is she going to say at the hearing. >> she's not going to

's been a gang buster year for the markets. unfortunately, the average u.s. investor out there has largely been on the sidelines. money in bonds, money into money market funds continuing to flow in the month of november. unfortunately, even as we do see a very, very good year for the stock market, not many investors are really taking part in this. >> i think we saw finally an outflow for bond funds in well over a year last week. that has been a rarity. we've warned many of our viewers, be careful of the duration risk. we're going into another year where many people are at least saying, okay, is the rally over? the 30-year rally in bonds, is it over? if it is, what is it going to mean? we've had people saying that the last three years. everybody's best trade was to short the long bond. it ended up being one of the worst trades you could make the last couple of years. >> in terms of being careful, speaking of being careful, today will be light volume, shortened session, but light volume. who knows what that could lead to. if you wanted bury bad news, christmas eve is the perfect day to do it

of the biggest lobbying groups in the u.s. they had their hands in some 60 measures this year alone. carol, when you compare this group to, you know, the other advocacy groups, the brady campaign to stop gun violence, when you compare those two groups, the nra outspends that group some 66 times more than the brady campaign. and they spent more than 4,143 times more money on contributions. so this is a big, strong, powerful group. carol, when they talk about meaningful contributions, what does that mean? this is a group, if they were to support a ban on assault rifles, that would be a huge blow to gun makers. >> i can't see that happening. >> what does it mean, a meaningful contribution? we have yet to see. >> yeah. we have yet to see. friday's the big day when the nra will maybe spell out what those meaningful contributions are. >>> with polls showing that more americans now support stricter gun laws, the question of gun control may not be if, but when despite the nra. that's prompting many americans to go gun shopping right now. cnn's david mattingly is here to talk about this new spike in sale

there was one shooter. the person who was detyned near the shooting scene was a man described as wearing b.d.u.s, khaki fatigues and working near the woods. i had a number of people tell me we don't think he's a player in this. that said, now the associated press says they're talking to the shooter's younger brother as john made the point this might just be due diligence by investigators to obviously want to talk to available family members and friends and close associates. so we can't say one way or the other and i think we need to be careful about not getting out too far too fast. because as we've learned in the past these big stories are kind of malleable, the facts, and they tend to change. on the guns, we have a law enforcement official, norah, telling us that with the shooter's body inside the school the police have recovered two handguns. one is a sig sauer, as john mentioned, that's the service revolver the secret service carries and the other is a 9 millimeter, the weapon of choice for many place departments. both are efficient weapons. kind of high quality weapons. and would have allow
